And it begins again, different yet the same
The group date card comes out and tons of dudes are going. Rachel meets the guys while grilling at a BBQ. Hmm...
Jonathan's job is "tickle monster" aka unemployed actor. They're playing football, and she "hut, hut, hikes" while wearing a dress. Everyone hates Lucas, and Blake, the aspiring drummer, says that Lucas is garbage and is only there to be on TV. Rachel has a lovely gap in her front teeth and I am so proud of her for not getting it fixed. Ashton Kutchner and some other lady are there. Ashton Kutchner is super hot.
It occurs to me that it's going to be really hard to find vintage photos to accompany my posts because there are not that many pics that don't reinforce some kind of negative stereotype.
Rachel likes that Lucas continues to surprise her. Even after he just read her a terrible poem. She feels that the conversations with the men are boring. She neglects to mention that one of the men is sweating like he just came out of a sauna and threw on a maroon button up. One-on-one goes to a super model. Aspiring drummer tells Rachel that Lucas is on the show to promote his product, Woo-Hoo, which may be a form of hair gel or possibly male make-up. Blake confesses to Lucas that she told Rachel that Lucas is only here to promote his lip gloss and his side job as a double for Howdy Dowdy. Lucas, slightly slurring his words, tells Blake that he is dismissed.
Will race be discussed on this show at all? Will one of the white men take Rachel home to meet his parents, only to reveal that they are the most polite kind of racists? Or will Rachel decide that all the white guys are lame, and send them home, because that's what always happens to the black characters on the show?
It seems that Rachel has a connection with Dean, partially because he has amazing dimples and blue eyes and is slightly silly. She likes that he came out and the first night and said, "When you go black, you never go back." I guess that's risky. She said that he stole her line.
Group date rose goes to Dean, who is so freakin' handsome. Howdy Doody is not happy about this and Kenny said he's going to break Dean's legs later. In a kidding way. Come on, Dean, kiss her...He does, and does that things where he puts his hand on her throat. She covers him in red lipstick. The producers quickly wipe it off.
One on one with this boring hot guy named Pete. She brings her adorable dog on the date. His name is Copper and he has one broken leg. Pete pretends to like the dog while surreptitiously wiping his hands on his khakis when she's not looking.
Small break for life things and so I missed whatever drama may have unfolded with that much testosterone in one small area.
We learn that DeMario (the Mario) has a white girlfriend. He's pumped to have the extra time. Little does he know..He sees the girlfriend says, "Oh...Who's this?" DeMario scrambles to explain. He plays the ex (?) as someone who is psycho. She doesn't really make a good case for herself by dropping the f-bomb ever other word. She shows Rachel the texts he sent and Rachel tells him to "get the fuck out." He says, "Sorry, Rachel" and the camera woman runs after him. DeMario keeps saying how crazy it is as he gets into a white limo. She does not want to talk about it and goes into the women's restroom to blow off some steam. She then goes back to tell the men in the locker room that they need to not try to play her and to tell her right now if they have girlfriends at home. No one fesses up.
It would be so so great if she sent all the white guys home one by one. She gives the date rose to Josiah, I don't know why. He's a prosecuting attorney, but I don't like his facial hair. She gives hugs goodbye to all of the men. I like her.
Final rose ceremony and the men must all pack in case they get sent home. P.S. Nobody is on this show for the right reasons. She arrives wearing a fancy long black dress with a golden belt. She explains that she will be honest with them, when Demario left, she reconsidered her options, and decided to stay on the show. Bryan, the chiropractor, gives her a back rub, even though that's not what chiropractors do though, right? Demario shows up because he wants to talk to her again and because the show really isn't that interesting at its core. Rachel would like to know what he could possibly say to her right now.
This is her dog, Copper. Stayed tuned to see if his cast comes off for all of the right reasons.
